Our editors are a diverse lot, and are constantly perusing a long and broad list of publications. Fashion? Art? Architecture? Culinary studies? Semantics? It’s all here. In What We’re Reading, PaperCity shares the wealth.

Stanislao Radikon passed away on September 11, and the wine world mourns. He was a winemaker of distinctive purity, and his bottles were — and are — full of beauty. Click here for an appreciation of the man.

Deconstruction: The literary theory (and practice) has a thorny past, and many see it as a totally French concoction. But not so fast. Let’s take a look back to the time Derrida was asked by the University of Virginia to compare the Declaration of Independence to France’s Déclaration des droits de l’homme et du citoyen. It seems that the rise of Deconstruction is a unique American tale.

The world of fashion never sleeps, and here’s a case in point: Justin O’Shea, who was named creative director of Brioni in March of this year, is already out. The Kering-owned house made the announcement yesterday. Read all about it here. It seems that O’Shea was a bit too much for the elegant brand.

Robots have taken over the catwalk! Karl Lagerfeld‘s recent show in Paris was full of all things digital. Take a look here!

The Drive-By Truckers, a great band from Alabama, have produced some outstanding work over the years. With American Band, they have what many are calling the perfect album for the Age of Trump. Here’s the skinny.
